Taiwan donates medical supplies

There is definite link between the governments of Taiwan and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, but Ambassador Jack Cheng is looking at the relationship at a people to people level. Cheng underlined the involvement of different Taiwanese parties when he addressed a handing over of some medical supplies to the Robert Milton Cato Memorial Hospital last Wednesday.

“Not only the government of Taiwan commits itself to the cooperation projects, the people of Taiwan also feel deeply that they want to share with you what they have,” Cheng said.

The Taiwanese government handed over EC$268,820 to Deputy Prime Minister Sir Louis Straker, but to emphasize the participation of the Taiwanese people, other entities have also stepped up with donations.
